Duties in ASWC this year: The Ombud serves as a liaison between the legislative branch–the Senate–and the Executive Branch–the Executive Council–and serves on both bodies. What that means for you is that I can be a resource to you or your student group, by offering you advice that is based on my intimate understanding of ASWC. I can help advance a concern you have, point you in the right direction with who to talk to, or be a sounding board for ideas you might have.

What about ASWC brings him joy: I am new to ASWC but am delighted when ASWC is able to bring unique experiences and resources to students that may have not otherwise been possible. I would like to see ASWC be a voice of the needs and wants of the Whitman campus community.
